PSA – Haptic Touch does not work on notifications on they new iPhone SE, confirmed by Apple Support
I received my SE yesterday and very quickly realized that Haptic Touch is not supported on notifications. I am not seeing this reported anywhere, haven’t seen one review mentioning it, no video I watched mentioned it. Haptic Touch works for peek and pop, and on icons on the home screen but if you are on the lock screen or Notification Center and try to long press an email to archive, or a text to quick reply you are out of luck.
On the 6S-XS 3D Touch was the solution, with the XR and 11 series Haptic Touch was the replacement, but this is the first non 3D Touch phone to be released where all the features of Haptic Touch are not fully baked into the OS
I called Apple Support and they confirmed this is true and there is no software update planned to change this behavior.
Want to make sure everyone knows about this as it’s a basic function of the phone and I’m not seeing any coverage about it on any news sites or any reviews. Thanks.
